Book Description

Paul Jun was unstimulated by traditional education and was desperately searching for ways to adapt. He began tapping into the resources that are available today while disciplining himself to take control over his education. Over time, he developed new habits that enabled him to turn self-education into a daily practice, all the while putting him on a career path as a writer.

Connect The Dots is a concise manual to help you get started on the path of self-education. The opportunity to learn anything to improve how you lead your life and do your work is more accessible than ever. This book isn't about blaming the education system or pointing out its flaws; it's about developing habits, fostering an intense desire to learn, and realizing that learning how to think, to connect the dots, helps us live greatly.

Editorial Reviews


"Paul Jun has written a book on a topic near to my heart: self-education. I've watched Paul's self-schooling over the last few years via email, and now you can discover the strategies and tools he's picked up along the way." -- Ryan Holiday, best-selling author of Trust Me, I'm Lying.

"Never before in history have we had as many chances to learn and grow and become -- and absolutely squandered them. This book is about someone who didn't." -- Jeff Goins, Author, The In-Between

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, Thought Provoking, and Inspiring March 31, 2014
By dkao
Format:Kindle Edition
Paul has a way with words that makes him clear, understandable, and real. Paul's voice is very down to earth, humble, and unafraid of promoting other people's work that he truly believes in.

One thing that I really enjoyed about this book was the level of actionable, practical advice that he offers, down to the very tools and things that he uses to organize his thoughts.

I've always had trouble curating and focusing the content that I read and listen to on a daily basis, and I've lately been thinking about how to spend less time reading what other people have to say and thinking for myself. Paul's thoughts on curating my channels has definitely helped with that.

Additionally, the commonplace book is something that I have been thinking about for a while, and this book has helped inspire me to enhance and grow my organization of that notebook.

Paul is truly an amazing writer, and this short read is definitely worth the money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! April 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Connecting the Dots is going to blow your mind.
If you think learning is about going to college or a specific course and get good grades and good feedback from your teacher, this book is going to open your mind.
Paul Jung talks about how responsible you are for your own learning and how Internet today makes access to information an entire trip to a self knowledge and inter knowledge acquirement.
Then, when you’re amazed by all his thoughts, you have explained in details how you collect, organize and go through all the information that there is in one single click.
The book is going to blow your mind, change your point of view and it will help you to organize all the information you’ll get in an educational way.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of its Kind November 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a thorough inspection of education and what can be done to further educate ourselves beyond the scope of "normal" education. I found this book incredibly interesting as well as easy to read- not an easy task. I applaud you Paul for your hard work and dedication to not only educating yourself, but educating me.

It is hard for me to sit down and read an entire book full of motivations for work, I often get distracted, bookmark a page and put it down. However, this book not only kept me engaged, it provided tools for me to now sit down and get through the other modern visionary's books on self-education, self-motivation and work.

Thank you, from the bottom of my distracted soul, for writing this. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and if you have any interest in becoming a better and more knowledgable human, you will enjoy it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and interesting read September 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book would be great to hand out to every high school and college student-- the advice is so helpful. So many students think in "boxes"-- they don't stop to consider the connections between the diverse subjects they are studying. This book helps them think in a new way and consider the connections and patterns between everything they are learning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging Book May 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Paul Jun is obviously very enthusiastic about his self-education and it is encouraging. The book was well worth reading and I find his protocols for taking control of the internet chaos very helpful. Quick read and even better re-read with some good references.
